Interesting animal, though I prefer kentrosaurus myself. That might just be a bias because of my younger years spent watching the Dino Riders cartoon, though. Regardless, these animals are very neat. I often wonder what it was that pushed them to evolve the spikes rather than the wide plates sported by animals like stegosaurus. Plus, kentrosaurus has those fantastic shoulder spikes sticking out too. It's just such a unique critter. Great work!

yes I also like that very much. But we dont know if it was like that in craterosaurus, fossils of this animal are very fragmentary.

Did they at least find the skull or just a few leg bones and ribs or something?

Not much, but you can tell how big an animal from just looking at its teeth
